Put Your Leftover Girl Scout Cookies to Good Use by Making These Tasty Treats
Year after year, we always promise ourselves to go easy on the Girl Scout Cookies. But do we head our own advice? Absolutely not!
This leaves us with leftover boxes of cookies jammed in our freezers to keep them fresh all year round. Don't get us wrong, it's not a bad thing, but sometimes we forget about the surplus of cookies and they don't taste the same when we discover them months later.
Thanks to some crafty peeps, we've come up with a solution for our little problem: using our leftover cookies in various dessert recipes.
Scroll below for tasty treats that use Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs and more.
Thin Mint Pie
The only thing better than biting into a Thin Mint is chomping down on one that's in this chocolatey pie. You'll need quite a few of the mint cookies to make this recipe, so make sure you don't devour them too quickly. Find the tutorial HERE.
